I am looking for an example matlab code for loading  the Arbitrary waveform files on a E4433b that actually worksactuially works

I have downloaded a ton of supposedly working matlab code to load the ESG series dual arbitrary wave form generator I have a e4433b. not of the stuff actually works all of it used commands that are not even in the e4433b programing manual
in particular I cannot figure out how to load the actual data values (8 bit bytes) the instruction is
:MMEM:DATA "ARBI:<waveform name>", <I waveformdata>

 

:MMEM:DATA "ARBI:<waveform name>", #ABC
"<waveform name>" the name of the waveform file within the signal generator.
A the number of decimal digits to follow in B.
B a decimal number specifying the number of data bytes in C.
C the binary waveform data in 2-byte integers.
Example 1
:MMEM:DATA "ARBI:WAVEFORM1", #232<32 bytes of data>
WAVEFORM1 the waveform name
2 defines the number of decimal digits to follow in B. This variable is
represented by A in the sample command line.
32 denotes how many bytes of data are to follow. This variable is represented
by B in the sample command line.
<32 bytes
of data> the binary waveform data in 2-byte integers. Data order is defined as Most
Significant Byte (first) and Least Significant Byte (last). This variable is
represented by C in the sample command line.


I cannot get the format of the #ABC part to work
